Re: Next time I'll be (Tricked For The Last Time Reviews)

Disclaimer: Sorry, I haven't paid attention to the optional challenge. Brown Word and the Big Whine: I think it's a grower and some of my friends would really dig this; I can imagine being charmed by this if I was listening to it performed live. COVID-19/Phlebia: Yeah, cool industrial rap/rock. I li...

Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

Whoops... in the rush to retreat from my computer room (really hot) I forgot to post my review for Glenn Case, so here it is: Glenn Case: What I like most is the 'not convinced x2' 'that checks out x2'; there's a sense of resignation or something I identify with; I can't decide if it is reinforced b...

Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene: I really like the spoken part - it reminds me a bit of Popular. Does it say 'cakes to bake'? Ah! It's 'case to make'. Trying to decipher where you'd be running that would put such an emphasis on baking skills, but I was wrong! I was listening in the car yesterday, and every t...

Re: You wouldn't dare... (Try Me Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - This is one of my favourites of this fight. 'Right. Now. It's time' - great, not sure what it reminds me of...maybe Tool, because I've been thinking about them. Really cocksure, in an amusing way, but then jumps into a nice pop mode for the chorus. 'I could believe the unbel...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

A slap on the back for Glenn, and a slap on the wrist for me; I didn't get around to voting/reviewing (heatwave, blah blah), but you can add another 'cause that song was my favourite from the fight:) Also, I would have voted for Balance Lost which would have broken the tie for second place.

Re: You're making me uncomfortable... (Personal Space Reviews)

Magnetic Letters - Is it unnecessarily harsh if I point out that this is a pretty noticeable drop in quality from your past few entries?......... Did you take too much benadryl? The lyrics entertained me, but musically this is a pass. No, that's quite flattering (to the other songs)! I was at the e...

Re: You're making me uncomfortable... (Personal Space Reviews)

Balance Lost: The use of panning in this song is good. Good 'slap. The arp at 1:30 is pretty rad. The crunchy/clean guitar dichotomy is effective. Reminds me of an '80s Aus band. Not INXS, maybe Pseudo Echo? The Knopfler-esque guitar at the end is unexpected and pleasing. The narrative didn't reall...

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

Absolutely Credible - Sounds epic. Excellent emo (that's what I'm calling it) vocals. Crunchy guitars. Distinctive organ riff - I like. That falsetto/acoustic breakdown is sweet. I guess it's a bit of a mini opera. My only criticism is that maybe the chorus at the end might be a bit too long, but g...
